Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam’s Uri: The Surgical Strike becomes the first BLOCKBUSTER of 2019

The first release of 2019, Uri: The Surgical Strike has entered the Rs 100 crore club today. Being a mid-sized budgeted film, the ROI of the film is huge, which makes it the first blockbuster of the year. The film trumped new releases like Why Cheat India, Fraud Saiyyan and Raju Rangeela and showed its dominance at the ticket windows. After doing supporting roles in blockbusters like Raazi and Sanju, Uri: The Surgical Strike has turned out to be the first Rs 100 crore film for Vicky Kaushal as the solo lead. For Yami, it’s her second film to cross the benchmark after Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil.

Yami, who is elated with the success of the film said, “Very happy with the kind of response that the film has earned and is continuing to have a great run at the box office. I’m very grateful to the team behind the film, everyone has truly worked very hard. It’s amazing to have producers like Ronnie who believe in their content and invest in people like us. I’m personally excited to have such a tremendous beginning to 2019 and I am certain to keep the audiences entertained further too”.

Talking about Uri, the film is based on Indian Army’s 2016 surgical strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan in retaliation to the terror attack on an Army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir. The film is produced under the banner of RSVP and also stars Paresh Rawal and Mohit Raina in key roles. Anyway, do you think the film has the potential to cross the Rs 150 crore mark? Tweet to us…
